Take the day off. I mean tomorrow, not today.
And why do we get to laze around all day tomorrow with nothing to do but think happy thoughts?
Because, it is Labor Day or, if you’re British, Labour Day. The Brits like to toss in an extra “u” whenever possible — labour, flavour, colour, honour. I’m not sure why.
We have studied the origins of Labor Day before, so this will go fast.
Aside from being one more excuse for a three-day weekend, and you can never have too many of those, Labor Day started with the labor movement in Canada in the 1870s; it’s an annual celebration of workers and all the worker-type things they do; it became a national holiday here in 1882, with a presidential order calling for celebrations to honor workers and their families and “…the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations.”
